Since the late 1990’s, GOSPELflava.com has been a mainstay in gospel music.
Early on we were challenged with the age-old question of mixing and mingling the Gospel with mainstream music and artists. Since the placement of blues chords in Thomas Dorsey‘s gospel, to the inimitable riffs of Sam Cooke and the super mellow of Marvin Gaye, the co-mingling of “secular” sounds and gospel music has held mystique and controversy.
We believe this doesn’t muddy the waters, as past history would suggest, but that it expands the reach of the Gospel.
Of course today, the medium has changed —no more albums or cassettes— and there is no longer a B-Side. But no matter the packaging, the Message of the Gospel still remains.
It is in celebration of this music that we present to you a collection of songs by some of today’s hottest artists and a reminder that while man looks on the outward appearance, that God looks on the heart. (1 Samuel 16:7). He looks for Something on the Inside.
